Microsofts Games Get Serious

ESP is a new software product based on the popular PC game Flight Simulator. It’s also Microsoft’s first foray into non-entertainment games.
It’s the first time a major software company has entered the non-entertainment games arena with a product to help other corporations build their own employee-training video games in-house via a simple, Windows-based program. And priced at only $799 per license, Microsoft ESP poses a cost-effective threat to smaller studios that develop custom games—at a cost of $500,000 and up per game—for corporations, hospitals, and the armed forces.
